First off before we begin, good thing that my cell phone tells me of responses because no popo up box came up as it should when you answered. Justa side note that I hope you can pass along to JA as I would havebeen waiting here all night for your response...
I am an educated Doctor of Pharmacy and believe me I cannot make sense of how you worded your answer.
1. What does it mean that both parties were given notice and an opportunity to be heard. The Finnish divorce was done here (obviously) and the process is completely different from any American process by a long shot....
2. It seems completely contradictory that I dont have to obtain a divorce in the US.
3. Then you say that "should you want to enforce the terms in the US...." Of course I do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
4. So why do you say this must be registered in my state, it is NY, So that contradicts your second sentence, does it not??
5. I need thisw all done so if and when I get married again in NY they say I am married.
I am sorry but now I amconfused more than ever....
